The Old Grandmother

On the left is grandmother (Halmi) from Gasan Ogwangdae. She dutifully spins while hoping to be reunited with her husband. On the right is Bongsan Talchum's feisty Miyal Halmi, who has become very interested in shamanism (note the bells, flags for the five directions, and fan) as she travels looking for her husband.
